We had the best time learning all about Roman Soldiers - we watched videos and read stories that helped us become experts about them; learning all about their equipment, the structure of the army, why they were so successful, why men wanted to be in the army and what benefits they got. We also learnt a whole lot of new vocabulary and what it meant like Centurion, gladus, pilum, Legate.
After we had learnt all about them, we entered 'Roman Army Training Camp' - we were given our shield and pilum (spear), marched (a lot!!) and were put into different centuries. In our centuries we were taught different battle formations: The Orb, The Repel Cavalry, The Wedge and The tortoise. Can you spot which one is which from these photos?
